A GROUP of tal­ented singers from the Ro­man Catholic Church re­cently came to­gether to re­lease a three-track soul­ful al­bum, “The Royal Mes­sage”.

It fo­cuses on is­sues af­fect­ing peo­ple’s day-to-day lives, in­clud­ing the sprout­ing of fake prophets.

The group — Royal Trum­pet, com­prises 10 mem­bers who are all based at Most Holy Catholic Cathe­dral Par­ish.

It was founded by Ben­jamin Chi­moyo and Gideon Ma­para is the group man­ager. The al­bum car­ries three tracks, ‘‘Baba Ndauyawo’’, ‘‘Ng­warira Nyoka’’ and ‘‘Vhula’’.

The group was founded in April last year.

Other mem­bers of the group are Deo­data Chi­moyo, Nomsa Chiko­homero, Feb­bie Nyagope,Theresa Mak­wati,Ti­nashe Ndere,Thando Mre­hwa, Prince Mre­hwa and Juliet Sithole.

Touched by the evil deeds of fake prophets who are on the prowl, the group com­posed a touch­ing song, ‘‘Ng­warira Nyoka’’ where they urge peo­ple to be wary of bo­gus prophets whom they de­scribe as “agents of the devil”.

“We liken false prophets as deadly ser­pents who are out to de­ceive and de­stroy. It is very dis­turb­ing to note that false prophets are now be­ing used as traps by the devil.

“We are now liv­ing in a de­cep­tive world. Satan is at work look­ing for peo­ple to de­vour.

‘‘We should pray hard so that we do not fall in his trap. The devil uses a lot of tricks and some of them ap­pear so at­trac­tive and ir­re­sistible,” said Chi­moyo.

The song has re­ceived rave re­views on lo­cal ra­dio sta­tion, Di­a­mond FM. It is far­ing well on Di­a­mond Daily Gos- pel top 20.

The song, Baba Ndauyawo, is a plea to God for for­give­ness and mercy.

“This song en­cour­ages lis­ten­ers to al­ways seek God’s guid­ance and pro­tec­tion in life’s en­coun­ters. It also en­cour­ages peo­ple to al­ways ask for for­give­ness in our in­iq­ui­ties. In of­ten times we anger God know­ingly and un­know­ingly so it is im­por­tant to plead for his mercy,” he added.

The song, ‘‘Vhula’’, was pre­sented in both Nde­bele and Shona lan­guages. It en­cour­ages peo­ple to pin their faith and hope on God and live their wor­ries on Him.

“We would like to thank our church and lis­ten­ers who sup­ported us from when we started. We are plan­ning to hold shows to mar­ket our new al­bum.”
